Eat Your Veggies!

Parents and adults everywhere often lament about getting enough vegetables into their diet.  I’d like to take this very public opportunity to give an enormous shout-out to Haagan-Dazs for their incredible brilliance.  In a stroke of complete genius, the ice cream makers have paired the deliciousness of ice cream with the health benefits of vegetables.  (I can see kids everywhere begging their parents for their daily helping of veggies!) 😉

Haagan-Dazs launches the product with two flavors: “Tomato Cherry” and “Carrot Orange”.

The only caveat, and it’s a doosie…this new “Spoon Vege” line is only available in Japan.  Whaaaat?!?!  Unfortunately, Haagan-Dazs hasn’t announced any plans to market the new flavors in the U.S.  (Shall we organize a writing campaign?) 😄

The tomato cherry flavor contains cherry juice and tomato paste.  The carrot orange flavor has concentrated carrot juice, concentrated orange juice, orange pulp and orange peel.  I can already think of the next yummy pairing…chocolate (big surpise, I know I know) and beet juice!

So, maybe a trip abroad is in order?
